Black Friday is back and this year at Blacks Outdoor, we’re excited to bring you the best deals on the premium outdoor brands you love. To get you ready for the scrum of Black Friday, here’s our advice on how you can bag what you want for the best price.

Black Friday - What is it?

Black Friday is a day of discounts and reduced prices where shoppers are able to purchase quality items for less in the run up to Christmas. Each year it has grown exponentially, with more and more people taking part in the annual event.

Where did it come from?

Originally founded in the US, the term is believed to have been first used in 1951 to describe the chaos caused by the scale of workers calling in sick the day after Thanksgiving in order to have a four-day weekend. If first came to the UK in 2003, although it wasn’t until a campaign by American company Walmart in 2013 that we saw Black Friday as we know it take hold. In the years that followed, the popularity of Black Friday has boomed in the UK, creating record breaking sales across the nation and allowing shoppers to get their hands on some of the best deals on the high street and online.
